Blogging Before Bed: A wrap and some awards

on
I’m back at home. It feels great. Before we tie this excursion (officially) up with a ribbon and a bow, I first want to say that I’m stunned that Washington beat Texas tonight.

Blogging Before Bed: Fairfield’s done

on
I’m not going to lie, I saw this coming. Ask any of the staff that I spoke with before the game. For some reason I saw this from the minute we got here. I was confident that Fairfield would win against Auburn the first time. I was confident that Pearland would beat them, and then […] [Read More]

Rain Delay

on
As you may or may not have seen, the tarp is on both fields as we are experiencing a (hopefully brief) rain delay. As you may have seen, if you’re following me on Twitter. I got caught outside in it. I’m only slightly soaked, but due to the wonder of media rooms, am drying quickly. […] [Read More]

Down time

on
I’ve been chronicling much of my trip to Williamsport through and how it relates to baseball. To be honest, there isn’t much more to do in Williamsport these days than watch baseball, especially when we’re staying right across the street. I’m prone to waking up pretty early (as made evident by the time of this […] [Read More]

Blogging Before Bed: Ouch!

on
Fairfield’s first loss since the first game of regionals stung a bit. Starter Eddie Magi only threw 1 1/3 and allowed five hits and four earned runs as he fell to 0-1. Pearland smacked the ball against all three Fairfield pitchers to the tune of 14 runs and 13 hits in just four innings. For […] [Read More]

Auburn wants Fairfield

on
While Fairfield focuses on trying to stay in the winner’s bracket of Pool B, it’s first opponent, Auburn, Wash. is focusing on the team that it lost to.

There are low clouds, but nothing that appears threatening yet. The operative word there is yet. According to weather.com, it appears that we’re on the fringes […] [Read More]
